Top 7 Awards Venues in London
November is the busiest month for award celebrations. During this busy period the Corporate Events team deliver on average four awards evenings a week – often with more than one happening on the same night. One thing that makes an awards night special is the venue, here are our top seven awards venues in London.
1. Grosvenor House, W1K 7TN
The Great Room at Grosvenor House is THE classic venue for an awards evening. Guests are greeted by traditional doormen who set the tone for a lavish evening ahead. The Great Room, formally a Victorian ice rink, can hold up to 2000 guests and the stunning chandeliers add an air of opulence to any celebratory event. A large entrance foyer and upstairs bar area are ideal for sponsored brand activations and experiential entertainment.
2. Tobacco Dock, E1W 2SF
For an awards ceremony with an edge, Tobacco Docks offers the Great Gallery for events under 1000 guests. For a smaller do, 400 guests can enjoy the Little Gallery. This dockyard turned events venue screams East London urban chic with gorgeous exposed brickwork and authentic timber beams. Downstairs in the vaults with its beautiful barrel-vaulted ceilings and Victorian walkways, there are a number of indoor and outdoor courtyards for drinks receptions or after parties!
3. The Brewery, EC1Y 4SD
Staying in East London, your guests can follow in the footsteps of Kings and Queens and step into this stunning Grade II listed building. Formally the Whitbread brewery for over 200 years, it is now one of the largest and oldest unobstructed event spaces in London with the Porter Tun room offering guests a clear view of the 60ft room. Comfortably seats 400-700 guests for dining, celebrating and commiserating!
4. Troxy, E1 0HX
Art Deco luxe sums up this breath-taking award-winning venue. It’s not hard to see why it’s been described as one of London’s “oldest, coolest and most iconic venues”. This former cinema provides a stylish yet quirky backdrop for events up to 1500 guests.
5. Guildhall, EC2V 7HH
This iconic venue is steeped in history having stood proudly at the heart of the city for over 800 years. The Great Hall is the perfect setting to make your award ceremony feel really special, adding a touch of Gothic grandeur to your event with its soaring high arched ceilings and stunning stained-glass windows. Seat up to 700 guests under the watchful gaze of monuments dedicated to Britain’s national heroes.
6. Roundhouse, NW1 8EH
A fave with music industry awards due to its rock’n’roll history, the Roundhouse in Camden, formally an engine house in the 1800s, is a distinctive and beautiful backdrop to any awards ceremony for up to 850 guests.
7. Battersea Evolution, SW8 4NW
Looking for something a bit larger? Battersea Evolution has you covered. Billed as London’s most flexible and versatile venue and with good reason, it has 5,500m2 of space and a 2,000 seated capacity. With an industrial charm, this purpose-built venue is a blank canvas ready to be transformed into an amazing award show!
